'll bring it to you in ten minutes. stick around for that. >>> an airline megamerger is taking flight. mandy drury is here with what's moving your money. >> they're getting together on valentine's day. well, this merger is going to cut down the number of major u.s. airlines now to four. you've got the new american, you'll have united, delta, and southwest. so everyone is kind of asking, what does that mean for me, the consumer. well, it potentially means higher prices, less competition, higher prices. we'll have to wait and see. also, richard, most airline mergers have resulted in a reduction of flights and also shrinkage at some hubs. but management is saying this is different because u.s. airways and american overlap on just 12 routes. if you are a traveler, you will not notice immediate changes. it is likely going to be months for example, the frequent flier miles are combined and years before the two airlines are integrated. in other words, don't panic. >> not yet. >> we'll move from the world's largest airline to automobiles, and you've got news on what is the most dependable. >> yeah.
